Project management

Expert solutions, from equipment supply to complete plant delivery

Fives is renowned for its extensive experience in industrial plant project management and has installed more than 80 complete cement production lines around the world. We bring our original equipment manufacturer (OEM) expertise and our engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contracting experience to a wide range of projects.

Fives masters all aspects of project execution: from equipment supply to complete plant delivery, for greenfield, brownfield and revamping projects. Our tailor-made project organization and delivery processes range from engineering and procurement to turnkey solutions for management of all aspects of a construction project.


A focus on health, safety, environment & quality

Committed to quality control, safety and environmental protection, we have implemented a strong health, safety and environment (HSE) policy across all our activities.

Our priority is to ensure compliance with the highest safety standards in the cement & minerals industries. Fives has developed a zero-accident policy across all its activities: from engineering and project delivery, to construction and plant operation. We also extend our safety management to our sub-contractors by ensuring they implement appropriate processes and practices for safe working conditions.

Fives has long been committed to excellence in achieving and even exceeding regulation standards to meet our customers' objectives. In 2011, the Fives group signed the United Nations Global Compact initiative to adopt sustainable and socially responsible (CSR) policies, and implemented a global CSR policy.
